Former Cubs Hitting Coach John Mallee Fired By Phillies And You Won’t Believe His Replacement


So, it kinda seems like Phillies fans are all for this? Former Cubs hitting coach John Mallee has been fired and the Phillies’ new hitting coach is 75-year-old Charlie Manuel!

Mallee was the Cubs hitting coach from 2015-17.

Sooo, Manuel returns to the dugout after last managing the Phillies from 2005-2013. Manuel had been working as an advisor to the Phillies GM.

The Cubs start a three-game series against the Phillies tonight.
